The Communities In Action Fund (CIAF) aims to help bring about a
physical activity and community sport culture in Ontario by helping
local and provincial not-for-profit organizations provide and enhance
opportunities for physical activity and community sport and recreation.
This initiative is a key piece of ACTIVE2010: Ontario's Sport and
Physical Activity Strategy that aims to help Ontarians be more
physically active. Eligible program applicants can receive non-capital
funding for projects falling under one or a combination of categories
covering planning, implementation, and/or development.
Depending on the availability of funding, the ministry will be
accepting and processing applications from eligible organizations on a
continuous basis. The final deadline is May 26, 2006, or when
sufficient applications to cover available funds have been received.
Specific information regarding the focus and eligibility requirements can be found in the CIAF guidelines, available at http://www.mhp.gov.on.ca/english/sportandrec/ciaf/guidelines0607.asp.
By working together, we can help Ontarians realize the benefits of an active lifestyle and contribute to a healthier Ontario.
